    We did a freedom kayak but we were well set up with a map and route where we would see the best wee views and potentially see some marine life! Was such a cool experience. These guys were great at helping us get into the water, and super easy to deal with. Wicked area, wicked people. Thanks so much

    What a wonderful trip - lucky to have perfect blue skies and a calm sea. Our two guides were so friendly, helpful and knowledgable, Over an hour to enjoy a picnic lunch and swim - sea so warm.
    The rock formations on the other side of the island were awesome

    What made this trip so special was the friendliness and care taken by our guides. We were a charter group of walkers with a wide range of ability. What impressed me most was the patience of the guides in dealing with some of the elderly members of the group. It was a great day out and to see and hear so many saddlebacks was a huge surprise.

    IF YOU WANT AMAZING MEMORIES CHECK THIS OUT!!
    Lately went out to Whale island on Wildside Adventures snorkeling trip.
    This was a fantastic day out on the water! We traveled by Catamaran, chilling on the deck in the sunshine.
    Then - my favorite part- exploring the world beneath the water!! Beautiful abundance of Native fish and lush seaweed forests, not to mention happening upon some SEALS!!! eeek I love these playful creatures!
    The tour guides were very knowledgeable, always happy to answer our various questions and help us when we need it (I'm a little new to snorkeling) what an experience! see you soon Wildside!!
